Crisis Block Technology
“Crisis Blocks”: Earthquake and Cyclone Resistant
Blocks can be laid with unskilled labour due to their interlocking design
Walls can be built in a single day since no mortar is required to lay them
Walls are earthquake, fire and cyclone resistant: they exhibit superior performance to conventional brickwork
Crisis Blocks can be easily made on a modern small block making plant
They have modular flexibility since they are 120mm wide and 240mm long.
Height is 120mm , with interlocking sections top and bottom.
A flat topped version can be made for window sills and wall tops.
Halves can be cut or made to suit.
Rebar is grouted in place vertically through the bricks as shown.
